  1. Home Built Z 'Full video build'

  2. RB20 Not Cranking

    Trying to help but your description not helping ! A tune should not affect your car cranking or not . However if you mean starting and idling yes it will ofcourse. If your getting ignition ON such as ECU, Fuel pump and all other chasis switched on accerssories then most likely it is the starter wire, Should be a spade connector that runs to starter. If its not you may have other underlying issues such as Ground connections, Main fuses switched power at ign etc,..
  3. As of now I'm not doing any harness's if anyone wants one let me know!
  4. MFactory R200 Helical LSD

  5. Megasquirt grounding

    I put them on a thicker gauge spade crimp and solder them, than ground on head/block/battery > If your doing on the head or block its good to have 2-3 grounding points from battery
  6. Replied Anyone one to jump in with Eduardo?
  7. Thanks guys. Well I sent them an email saying the issue is ridiculous for all reasons you mentioned above and more . If they don't reply by tomorrow according to eBay I am allowed to relist. Oh and I shouldn't have to remove the name Nissan just cause a stupid bot or whatever picked it up as copyright infringement ! Just like you mentioned there are thousands more like millions of ads containing Nissan not just on eBay but every platform you could think of and most of them being crappy generic,,,. Sad part about it is if they only knew how die hard I am to Nissan and Datsun! oddly enough my brother is a Nissan Salesman lol
  8. Hi! I have no idea what I’m doing…

    NEW FISH! its nice when new members introduce themselves I wish I had a lil more etiquette . Welcome to the forum there's quite some good advice here to sum it up. Two schools of thought dig in hard full resto-mod *all out and learn very well and sorta the hard way unless you do some research. Its not always how techy you are but how eager you are to learn some people cant learn from reading, rather doing it practically works too. I did this route and I wish I did a bit slower I did my first l28et swap before I even changed pads so I could relate. This method will be definitely a rude awakening however I must admit when I first did the swap way back there was way less things documented compared to now. The upsides to this is you learn way faster/more rewarding *(when it goes right) the downsides is probably takes longer, is harder and more downtime **(jackstand racing). Start slow, low($) and progressively learn as you go. The downside you will end up spending more money re visiting things and thirst more POWER/modifications in that s3. Upsides enjoy the car as you go on this journey. Really boils down to how much you want to do it? how much free time do you have!? and how much money you willing to throw? In my opinion If I had to everything all over again I honestly would go as close as turn key as possible. Oh and don't listen to anyone telling you here this is the "best" or go "stock resto" this HBZ anything goes enjoy your new addiction.
  9. Oh ok thanks I'm going to try that. This is so ridiculous that it has come to this.
  10. What year 240sx TPS on L28 engine?

    Not really most tb out there are dslots and if he's not changing linkage to other side should still open clockwise. And even then most standalone can calibrate a TPS sensor. Go with 92 from automatic, keep in mind you won't use the 3 pin sqaure plug that looks like the fuel injector rather the 3 pin with rounded corner. Should come off TPS with a little pigtail. Also you might have to re drill the mounts / ears according to what I read I didn't cause I changed the whole throttle body to a 240sx unit with spacer ofcourse https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/nissan,1992,240sx,2.4l+l4,1209013,fuel+&+air,throttle+position+sensor+(tps),5136 The one I use on my MS kits
  11. As some of you may know I'm making the plug and play harness's for us Datsun folk with Megasquirt. From that I became an authorised Megasquirt re-seller and started listing my harness's with other MSPNP (Megasquirt Plug and play ECU'S) that are already out there from DIYautotune. I just got a message from eBay saying 4 of my listings were removed based on trademark violation. They were all Nissan related two of them being them being the harness's I make and the other two were MSpnp ecus for 240sx I am so baffled right now I dont know how this could happen. Ebay is clearly scared so they took them off right away not even caring to look into the matter. These are MY harness that I made for Megasquirt, none of my listings had ANY Nissan/Datsun logos. Furthermore, there are still seller's of the same MSPNP ECU's exactly what they took off. If this a case using the name than any product made for aftermarket OR even stock replacement should be taken down. this is the message I got today After reviewing your eBay account, we've taken the following action: - Listings have been removed.

  12. HybridZ may be shutting down.

    SuperDan its a tough economy for sure especially since this site is free for everyone now you made me feel bad cause im running an ad blocker. Derek thats a great idea for the speaker panels ill take a set of 240z low profile. Donate $50 (sent already) I already have a donation of my harness/ecu kits sold via hbz but no one has purchased since I become an authorized re seller. The least I could do also anyone looking to purchase diyautotune.com products I can get them for same price and all the profit will go here.
  13. Front or Rear sump

    Good eye guys I completely missed that. I also got too excited just seeing the upper portion.
  14. It's not for sale I'm installing it for this year. Next year if I go 2jz I will sell setup or part it out. Turned out I also go a bit of warpage I ended up machining flat.
  15. Hey Austin , thanks for your interest I decided to put it back in the car after there wasn't much interest in the complete setup. Iam almost finish putting it back actually. Shooting for 500+
